My annual birthday was sweet this year. Friends gathered around a board laden with cheese, fruit and beer on Monday and shared good, warm human time. We sampled Rosa's fantastic cranberry Wensleydale, Nori's velvety havarti, Manchego from Eleven and the T-beast.
And Parrano, (also from the T) one of my favorites.
and gruyere, and truffle cheese and cheddar...
The Czarina brought bags of fruit and flowers (the daffodils bloomed yesterday!) The Celestial one brought Wolaver's. There was plenty of beer. Chocolate stout, Nut Brown Ale and Raspberry Lambic graced the cooler.
Thank you everyone!
